Bush Tax Cuts and Jobs?

So the question is where are the jobs from those Bush tax cuts? When the tax cuts were passed they were done so with an end date because they were not paid for. John McCain would not sign the bill unless it had an end date. During that time we had the lowest jobs totals since the great depression. And if you think not go to Wikipedia, jobs created during the US presidential terms.

Turd World Got You Down? Hemp for Victory!

Looking at all the problems facing us today, the sheer number is almost overwhelming. What to address first? The country I grew up in is almost unrecognizable to me. We used to be proud of having social programs, like parks, museums, and libraries - and they were free! Of course, that was before the tax rates for the richest were dramatically lowered, as were wages for the people who work for a living.

I hope so.

Why is the U.S. still at war?

Military service - the defense of the country - is an obligation and a duty imposed on citizens of a democratic nation. As the Supreme Court put it years ago: "duties which individuals owe to the state." It is, to use a hackneyed but true phrase, the price of freedom.

Progressives Must Organize and do a Campaign against Fox News lies and Distortion


I think the PROGRESSIVES NEED TO ORGANIZE and do a outreach campaign against Fox News. If all the progressives were able to organize we could bring down Murdoch and his Saudi Arabia money that is behind Fox by doing a all out information campaign about the lies and distortion of their news broadcasts and the Becks and Hannity lies and all the rest. I think we could hurt their reputation so bad that progressives would be a force to be dealt with.
